Top 5 Pubs in The Hague, Netherlands

Monday, February 23rd, 2009

There is always something happening after dark here in The Hague, Netherlands with the nightlife one of the main attractions for the visitor.

However, one of the best experiences you can have is visiting one of the many pubs located in the city. There isn’t a huge student population in The Hague, probably due in part to the city’s natural formality which subdues the nightlife somewhat.

However, make no mistake about it. There is a thriving culture when it comes to the many bars and pubs in The Hague. Here is a list of the top 5 most recommended pubs to visit in the city.

1. De Paap Music Cafe/Bar

One of The Hague’s most popular bars. In the early evening, the bar is relatively quiet, but it is still the perfect atmosphere for a drink with family and friends. Additionally, this is the ideal place for a great night out when venturing into The Hague nightlife.

2. Blue Lagoon – Strandrestaurant

A beach-bar and beach-restaurant situated on the promenade of Den Haag. One of the more stylish “pubs” in the city, the Blue Lagoon offers the visitor extremely comfortable surroundings. There is room for roughly 250 people during normal business hours inside the establishment and out on its lovely terrace that gives you some panoramic views of The Hague.

3.  Crazy Pianos

Despite the tacky younger atmosphere of this pub, this American styled bar has a top-quality servicing staff, especially where larger groups are concerned. The atmosphere is similar to Hooters for lack of a better description.

4. Zwarte Ruiter

For excellent service and just all-around fun, this is one of the most recommended stops for all age groups who love the pub atmosphere and the nightlife. And if you like sitting outside, there is a huge terrace that is open in summer and winter alike.

5. Café Restaurant Rootz

One of the best spots to enjoy top-of-the-line Belgium Beers if that is your preference. During the summer months, this pub can be extremely crowded and the service is a little slower than what you would like, but the owners and management want this establishment to offer their patrons a relaxing atmosphere after a busy day sight seeing and touring The Hague.

    I must say I was surprised by your list of bars in The Hague; I would rate the ones you listed as peers – but certinly not in my top 10 for the city and scheveningen…. Should you return to The Hague – send me an e-mail and I’ll give you a list to try out. If at the conclusion of more detailed research you still feel the above are the best – I will agree to disagree with you.
